Do you feel that? It’s a surge of energy and excitement. This is the kind of place where you can chill on the beach one day, and rappel down a waterfall the next. A place that’s as exciting as it is beautiful. Join one of our teen travel programs in Costa Rica, you’re in for the summer of a lifetime!

Located in the heart of Central America, Costa Rica may be a small country, but it’s packed with energy and excitement! It’s also full of rich natural beauty, protected areas and national parks to explore. Not to mention beaches, hot springs, rainforest zip-lining, rafting and more. This is a place where Pura Vida (the pure life) is more than just a slogan, it’s an awesome way of life.  Join us on a Costa Rica community service programs or Costa Rica adventure travel programs.
